Features & Attractions
Waterslides, great food & more!
Great Waves offers some of the most unique and fun water attractions in Northern Virginia! Start with the waterslides - five in all. That includes a pair of speed slides in which users climb a dizzying staircase before sliding at high speed into the water below, as well as three waterslides - two open and one covered. Zig zag, twist and curl as the cool water rushes you to the pool below. Of course, the park’s centerpiece is the giant wave pool. Grab a tube, bob and weave in the surf as undulating waves give you an ocean-like experience. For the little ones, our Kids Zone is a great place for you and the kids to cool off while having a great time, and don’t forget about the giant splash pad! Great Waves also offers several other attractions to really make your day memorable. Enjoy pizza and ice cream at the Surfside Pizza and Soft Serve, or lunch and snacks at the Riptide Café.
Paradise Play at Cameron Run
Open Spring through Fall, this colorful beach themed play structure features exciting climbing and play features including triple slides, spiral climbs, pogo bounces, rock wall, spiral slides, mazes, kids conveyors, wobble hoppers and so much more to provide hours of entertainment for kids 3 to 12.
Batting Cages at Cameron Run
Step up to the plate and get ready, because we're bringing the heat at our deluxe batting cages! Choose slow or fast pitch softball, or take a crack at baseballs instead featuring a variety of tough speeds. We’ll provide the bats and helmets, or you can bring your own. Hone your swing alone, or get a group of friends together and see who can get the most hits!
Mini Golf at Cameron Run
This beautifully designed and landscaped course offers many challenging holes and hazards, with lush greens in every direction and nearby fountains. 18-holes of miniature golf fun awaits the whole family!
Great Waves offers four great cabanas, a perfect way to enjoy a little personal space. Our tiki hut themed cabanas accommodate a maximum of 8 guests and come complete with shade, deck chairs and tables. Cabana rentals are $50.00 on weekdays and $65.00 on weekends. Prior reservations are required and may be made online.
Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run
Glide across the ice at Ice & Lights, The Winter Village at Cameron Run in Alexandria, Virginia. The waterpark is transformed mid-November through February into a winter wonderland with an ice rink, beautifully lit photo ops, music and more! Grab a slice of pizza, roast a marshmallow over the fire pits, and enjoy the winter village.
Swim lessons at Great Waves Waterpark are a great way for your kids to brush up on their water skills. We offer class lessons for everyone from the youngest beginners to age 5. Registration for classes is normally available at the beginning of waterpark season, starting just before the waterpark opens on Memorial Day Weekend.

While you are enjoying our aquatic facilities, you can feel secure knowing that you are being closely monitored by licensed aquatics staff. “Safety is golden” is the mantra of our staff, who take their jobs seriously and hold the safety of you and your family in the highest regard. They are regularly tested for equipment readiness, situation recognition and professionalism. Swim with care, but do so knowing that our team of guards is ready to assist you should the need arise.
